Angelbird/RedsharkNew Angelbird SSD's

We've already told you about Angelbird SSD drives and how well engineered they are but they have some new models at IBC which look  interesting

 Angelbird is the Austrian SSD manufacturer whose products are so beautifully engineered that we've raved about them before.

At this year's IBC they are launching three new product lines;

The first is the SSD2go Pro, which is an external SSD drive with USB3 and eSata connections. It comes in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacities.

Second are the AVPro series of bare SSD drives. These connect directly to the SATA ports in a computer or devices like the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and are available in 240GB and 480GB capacities. They are approved by Blackmagic for all their SSD based devices.

Third is the AVraw SSD range, these are the worlds first SSD's with a 10 channel memory controller and they are designed for sustained 4K read and write operations.

You can read the full press release after the break:

NovaChips® NVS3600 Series 10 channel SSD controller
Grade A Intel® or Micron® Synchronous MLC with maximum bad block sorting of 0.05%
Extremely low latency 2-2-2 low power mDDR 2Gb cache
Thermally compensated IO interface
Read/write drive activity pin for external indication
ESD and overload protection
Sub-page mapping
Constant high performance, regardless of data pattern / the performance of 3rd party SSD controllers is based on compressed data, and its write performance is dropping at incompressible data such as movie, MP3, and image files. We offer real performance without compression, so no fluctuation on different data patterns
Constant high performance, regardless of disk status / other SSDs show performance drops when the disk starts to get full. The AVraw shows constant performance even at full disk status
4KB random performance / in reality, over half of data block size transferred from the host to the SSD is eight sectors, 4KB, especially at Queue Depth 1. The AVraw has world-best performance at 4KB read/write QD1. With sub-page mapping technology, the lifetime is enhanced
Sudden power loss protection. The AVraw guarantees no data corruption occurs at power loss
CNC worked shell
